Hollywood Cone Toronto

1167 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1J4

The ice cream concoctions found here have been plastered all over social media since it opened earlier this year. Hollywood Cone offers three flavours – chocolate, vanilla and a twist of the two, and as for the toppings, they seem to be endless! You can top your cone with sour gummy bears, Kinder Surprise, cookie dough, birthday Cake and more!

Fugo Dessert Inc

205 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M5G 1C8

The cones are the star of the show at Fugo Desserts. From the Instagram famous Cookie Monster cone (blue ice cream surrounded by chocolate chip cookies) or the S’mores on S’mores (marshmallow ice cream with brownie and cookies and cream chocolate) the cones are creative and delicious.

Junked Food Co Inc

507 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2B4

Junked Food Co.’s specialty is junk food, so it’s no surprise that the soft serve cone is the epitome of the brand. The cones are the standard waffle variety, but the toppings can be anything from candy to cereal to cake. Anything goes at Junked Food Co.!

Sweet Jesus

106 John St, Toronto, ON M5H 1X9

It’s safe to say that Sweet Jesus kick started the soft serve craze in Toronto when it started offering up creative and crazy cones on the La Carnita menu. From the famous Krusty Kone (there’s cotton candy on it people!) to the demure strawberry rhubarb (think bright pink ice cream with lots of sprinkles), Sweet Jesus always delivers on Instagram-worthy cones. Make sure there’s space on your phone before you head out!

Eva's Original Chimneys

454 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M5S 1X8

Eva’s Original Chimney has flipped the ice cream cone on its head. Instead of wafer or waffle cones, Eva’s serves its ice cream in Hungarian pastries, also known as chimneys. The pastry is rolled in sugar and cinnamon before it’s filled with soft serve ice cream and topped with a selection of garnishes like berry compote, salted caramel drizzle and more.

Dutch Dreams Ltd

36 Vaughan Rd, Toronto, ON M6G 2N3

The waffle cones at Dutch Dreams are not the regular variety. The cones are dipped in chocolate and then rolled in everything from candy, to pretzels to cookies. The tricked-out cones are some of the best in the city!

La Diperie

372A Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1N8

Originally from Quebec, La Diperie literally dips its ice cream cones in a multitude of toppings, from chocolate to caramel and white chocolate, and then dipped into any additional topping you choose. La Diperie offers two types of cone – waffle and a hot puff pastry cone.

Brett's Ice Cream

1698 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4L 1G6

Over the past few years we’ve seen many types of cones, from waffle to doughnut to Hungarian pastry, but Brett’s is offering something different. The cones at Brett’s Ice Cream are cake! They are hand-rolled and come in flavours like red velvet, cinnamon brown sugar, birthday cake and toasted coconut.

Pancho's Bakery

1017 Dufferin St, Toronto, ON M6H 4B5

Speaking of unique cones, Pancho’s Bakery is serving its soft-serve ice cream in a churro. Carefully formed into a cone shape and then deep fried, the Churro adds a soft and warm element to the classic ice cream cone.


394 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2A6

Kekou Gelato is already unique, infusing Asian-inspired flavours into the Italian iced treat, but the infusion doesn’t stop there. The seaweed cone sees an infusion of West and East again, with nori interwoven into the standard waffle cone. Try it with the whisky green tea!

For many CNE visitors, it’s all about the food! While there are always lots of new unique and over-the-top selections to try each year, there are also some great familiar options for those who want something tried-and-true. Here are some of the more established eateries that always serve up an amazing foodie experience that are taking over the CNE in 2017. [Photo credit: courtesy of Eva’s Original Chimneys]
